Khanyi Mbau On Why She’s Bleaching Her Skin

Published

on

“90% of my skin is cosmetic now”, revealed Khanyi Mbau in a recent interview with eNCA.

The 33 year old media personality, who’s been the subject of much public furore over a new wave of new skin lightening claims, sat down with Thembekile Mrototo to clear the air.

While Mbau’s skin tone has transformed through the years, this is the first time the actress took the time to attend to the most pressing questions about her skin treatments.



In the interview, Khanyi Mbau does admit to lightening her skin through various products and treatment, but shot down perceptions that she’s bleaching her skin for access to new social capital that comes attached to lighter skin. “This was a personal choice. Not because it was something that is needed for the industry, it’s something that I preferred.

For her, it all comes down to two things. One, it’s a “maintenance issue”. Khanyi said she hates sitting for too long in the make up room, an inconvenience which takes up much time.

“I realised that once my skin is fairer, then I need to use less make up.”

Khanyi Mbau also revealed that she spends and average of R10 000 on IV skin lightening procedures, prescribed vitamins and other products.

The interview comes just days after Pearl Thusi and Sho Madjozi were forced to weigh in on their own light skin privilege in a wake of a heated colourism debate on social media.

Babes Wodumo Shames Lady Zamar’s Acne In Bizarre Video

You hate to see it

Published

on

UPDATE: 15 AUG 2019 – 10:30


Babes Wodumo has distanced herself from a tweet in which she firmly stood by the shots she allegedly took at Lady Zamar.

A tweet went out on the feisty Durban singer’s Twitter account on Thursday, in which she not only stood by  her words, but also tossed obscenities at her detractors. “I said what I said”, the tweet read. “I don’t care if you guys hate me or not I’m proud.”  (sic)

Her Twitter account went on to retweet a tweet endorsing the teasing of Lady Zamar’s acne.

Not all is what is seems, apparently. The Wololo hitmaker has since taken to Instagram to blame the tweets on a hack. In a video she shared on Thursday morning, Babes denies having any knowledge of the tweets, saying she’s just shocked as everyone else. She also said she’s working hard to resolve the mess.

A video allegedly depicting Babes Wodumo tossing insults at Lady Zamar has surfaced. The 25 year old Durban singer can be heard calling the Monarch hitmaker ‘S’f***”, which translates to ‘whore’.

Babes sounds disgusted by Lady Zamar’s acne, and apparently livid that she cracked a few laughs during a guest appearance in a recent ‘wooden mic’ segment of Idols SA. 

An unidentified voice echoes the epithets, daring Lady Zamar to remove her make-up.

Lady Zamar faced much teasing when a tight zoom of her face during the Idols SA appearance became a fixation for resident social media trolls. The singer, who’s been open about her battles with the condition, has been keeping a positive outlook amid the cyber bullying.

Instead, Lady Zamar has been focusing on the promotion of her critically lauded album, Monarch. One can only wonder if Babes has heard the song Fat Gal, the body positive anthem appearing on the new project.

ALBUM REVIEW: LADY ZAMAR’S MONARCH ARRIVES 

Following Babes’ taunts, a slew of famous personalities personalities, such as ThickLeeyonce and MoFlava in Lady Zamar’s defence.  “Babes Wodumo making fun of Lady Zamar’s acne is such a cringe fest”, Thickleeyonce.

DJ Fresh’s controversial booting from Metro FM has ended in a fresh start.

After much speculation about what the Big Dawg’s next move would be following his highly publicised departure from his popular breakfast slot on the SABC station breakfast slot, 947 on Tuesday announced that Fresh would be hosting their afternoon drive.

The show, tentatively called Fresh On 947, will debut live on air Thursday, August 1st. The afternoon drive will be on between 15:00 and 19:00.

RELATED: FRESH BREAKS SILENCE OVER METRO FM SUSPENSION

Elated fans expressed their delight with the veteran radio presenter’s return to the airwaves as soon as the news broke.

Fresh’s sudden sacking by Metro FM was met with much backlash, as the breakfast continued to trend for the wrong reasons. For weeks, his listeners protested his absence on his slot.

The silence only recently came to an end when the SABC confirmed that his contract had been ended effective immediately.

And it was all down to because the two parties had reached an “impossible impasse”, as Fresh termed the breakdown in communication, after he allegedly used foul language’ on air.

Khanyi Mbau Shades Beyoncé

Bey has ruined the Lion King for Khanyi Mbau

Published

Whether she’s giving the public glimpses of a pampered life or showing up on a news network to tackle rife speculation on skin bleaching, Khanyi Mbau never fails to keep it real.

And the media personality’s candour ruffled a few feathers when she shaded Beyoncé’s role in the highly anticipated remake of Disney favourite, The Lion King.

The film, which has been a timeless classic since 1994, is receiving bad reviews as critiques continue lambasting various elements of the highly anticipated motion picture.

Mbau added her voice, blaming Beyoncé for how things are panning out.

“She messed up the film!”, Mbau tweeted gallantly.

Unimpressed with her frank critique, Beyoncé’s legions of fans swarmed her timeline, reading her for filth.

Mbau is not the only one who’s slamming the movie, however.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the film’s overall critic score currently tumbles at 60%. For some perspective, the original film has a score of 93% on the American aggregate reviews platform.
